Different communities from across the town met up for the Windsor and Maidenhead Community Foundation’s (WAMCF) eighth inter-faith cricket match.
It was held at the ground of Boyne Hill Cricket Club, in Highway Road, on Sunday.
The day’s itinerary was to start the children’s match at 10.30am, and then host an adults’ T20 game, followed by another short overs game, depending on how many people turned up.
WAMCF’s members also planned a barbecue, which usually involves cooking both halal and non-halal meat, while mainly focusing on vegetarian dishes in order to avoid any religious dietary requirement pitfalls between Maidenhead’s faiths.
Trip Pannu, a WAMCF member, said these types of community-connecting events are vital.
He continued: “The world is a little bit unstable. We have all been watching the Olympics and watching Team GB. Sport just brings us together. Food and sport, I always say.
“We share food and have fun. It really is good fun, a lot of families come and have something to eat.”
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
